I use it for work as a way to call D functions from R and vice 
versa [[project page](https://embedr.netlify.app/)]. That's not 
the only library I have for numerical computing, but it's the 
only one I've publicized. As with everyone, I don't have enough 
time to turn them into public projects.

I'm working on a compiler for a subset of R. When finished, it 
will allow anyone to compile bottlenecks in R code, requiring 
only type information and not requiring any knowledge of D. Since 
not all R code can be made fast or needs to run blazing fast, it 
will only be the subset of R for which it makes sense.

I have numerous other projects. For instance, my [tiddlyd 
app](https://github.com/bachmeil/tiddlyd) provides a very simple 
way to get a TiddlyWiki instance up and running. I've written 
utilities for [Obsidian](https://obsidian.md/) that convert my 
files to PDF, html, and other formats, convert org-mode outlines 
to Obsidian files, convert a directory of markdown files to a 
TiddlyWiki app, and many other things.
